Yup in fact the Dark Avengers consist of-

DA

[details=Spoiler]Ms. Marvel is Moonstone
Hawkeye is Bullseye
Black Suit Spidey could be Venom
The Sentry may actually be the Void persona

So really its the Thunderbolts disgracing the OG Avengers…with the exception of a few[/details]


#3

Hmm where did they that?^

Im pretty sure it was supposed to be revealed as common knowledge somewhere but I forgot where


#4

Well they do work for Norman :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Don’t forget Ares & whoever the Iron Patroit is


#6

Yeah well…actually is that really Ares with them or just some dude in the Ares armor?
Either way I only listed those that dawn the outfits of the original avengers.


#7

i heard this will be in 616…maybe they’re doing this to kill off wolverine


#8

No, they aren’t. Logan’s gonna be in the New Avengers, Daken will be in dark.

I’m sure that’s actually Ares. He’d have no problem working for Norman. Whoever lets him smash things is cool in his book.


#9

@fistoftheyuristar- Umm this has been known to be in the 616-verse since its announcement.
The Dark Avengers are part of the Dark Reign crossover event that came out of Secret Invasion.


#10

yeah i just got back into comics a short while ago so a lot is new for me.

i think the new avengers dark avengers thing actually allows for more flexibility


#11

another thing:

why do you think daken is parading around in daddy’s spandex? what possible reason could Daken have to wear the Wolverine costume when Wolvie is out there fighting in another Wolverine costume?


#12

Reason

Spoiler

For the same reason Bullseye is parading around as Hawkeye, and Venom is reeling in the tongue and pretending to be Black Costume Spidey: Legitimacy. Norman is trying to play off his team as the “true” Avengers, something he couldn’t really pull off if his team consisted of a bunch of known criminals. Admittedly, Daken isn’t as publicly known as Bullseye, or Venom, but he certainly isn’t revered as a hero either. Since Logan was part of the original New Avengers squad, the appearance of “Wolverine” on this team would only seem natural to the general public.


#13

Doesn’t one of Daken’s claws come out from under his forearm?

Dead giveaway.


#14

Reason

Spoiler

You confused me for a sec. Im just making sure…is Daken really posing as Wolverine? Or just a Wolverine-influenced anti-hero?


#15

re: 3rd claw

The average marvel resident may not be that up on details of Logan and Daken has ways around the immediate distinction.

re: spoiler?

yes! :confused: and yes… :bluu:


#16

ha why would it be yes for both? im asking whether if he’s being an impersonator or if its just to rival daddy.


#17

A) Why can’t it be yes for both?

B) Wait until New Avengers #50 or Dark Avengers #1 comes out, maybe? THIS TEAM HASN’T EVEN FORMED YET MAN ALL ANSWERS WILL BE REVEALED KEEP READING STAY TUNED TRUE BELIEVERS FACE FRONT EXELSIOR AND ALL THAT JAZZ! :looney:

You’re losing it, Sano. That preview was posted on CBR like a day or two ago!

I like Deodato’s art in terms of his storytelling angles and when he draws normal people. When he draws superheroes, it seems like he hasn’t gotten rid of his '90s stylistic flourishes. Noh-Varr, Sentry, “Spidey,” and “Wolvie” all look gross with that musculature. They way their thighs and abs are all exaggerated just does not fit well with the rest of his art and his otherwise realistic style. Even the Iron Man suit looks like it’s on steroids. I never understood that - why an Iron Man suit would need a six pack (or a twelve pack) of abs. At least there aren’t any rubber nipples.

I wonder if Bendis is going for an O.G. Thunderbolts vibe here, where the last page of the comic will be a shocker out of left-field.
